Lol how did they not think this would get out?
Least surprising news of all time.
Apparently, he isn't very smart.
Which is weird, being a GOP candidate with Trump support and all.
Doubtful. I saw a poll today. Jones down 8 to Tubbs, 6 to Sessions. Hopefully sessions can pull off the win and jones will have a better shot. Still not happening
Searched for close to a whole minute... couldn't find it
you know what to do if you ever do
so sad Tuberville is a victim of GOP voter suppression
This is tremendous tmb content
That last map makes it hard to trust any if the other data. Alabama fans makes up at worst 60% of the state and that last map is way off.
Changing my campaign slogan to "fear the thumb"
I'd guess that's a % of total vs % of football fans?
Still a bad stat
Yeah, it doesn’t make sense to me. Look at Tuscaloosa County...
Tuscaloosa shows 10-20%. Any way you slice it, that's bad.
Didn't even look over there, yeah that's... Not right
There are some counties on there that have both Alabama and Auburn fans as 1-10%. So are you telling me that Alabama and Auburn fans combined are less than 20% in Marion and Pickens County?
Wouldn’t trade ol Lou for nothin I tell ya
A direct line!
Sessions has run a historically bad campaign with a shit ton of money. He should be embarrassed.
Runoff is today right?
Yes. I don't think there's going to be a very big turnout. At my polling station only 30 people had voted before 8:30, which is generally the busiest wave there. I was actually the only person who had voted in the democratic primary (granted, it only included one race -- for Jefferson County treasurer).
ghouls like him have no shame
I can't believe he's actually running again at 73
Shit, Shelby is 86.
True but he never publicly failed and embarrassed himself in Washington. To come back after that and try to win an open seat is...bold.
I imagine he, like me, thought that he had enough good will from GOP voters and establishment in the state to ride it out.
Underestimated just how cultish GOP is with Trump.
Sessions should have known that Trump was going to shit on him and endorse Tuberville, which was going to make it really hard to win a state primary in Alabama
Maybe I overestimated how much a rich guy would want to work in his 70s
I find it fascinating how Trump can just continually hire people with good reputations among the Republican party, brag about hiring the best people, can them, call them incompetent and hire the next guy and repeat this process ad nauseum and none of his voters bat an eye.
Politicians are weird.
But I think Sessions wanted a rebound from his Trump embarrassment.
There’s still a lot of minorities that need to be oppressed and one is never too old to oppress minorities.
He probably assumed Trump would endorse Byrne. None of this has made sense.
Turnout was 10-15% of registered Republicans.
Sometimes I regret not running Sessions over with my car when I had the chance last month, but I'm going to enjoy his the shame of his embarrassing failure after trying to boot lick a man who hates him while I'm not in prison.
Tuberville is worse.
Updated just now16% reporting
Candidate Votes Pct.
Tommy Tuberville 46,072 60.2%
Jeff Sessions 30,488 39.8
already called for tubs
Statewide turnouts are so low these runoffs have questionable legitimacy. We’re going to have U.S. house primaries with fewer than 10k votes cast.
They’ve updated the senate vote to an expected 7% turnout. That’s unfuckingbelievable.
The people of Alabama overwhelmingly chose a NY flip flopping crooked elite yankee asshole ('s surrogate) over Jeff Sessions, who was widely beloved in the state 5 years ago and could've coasted the rest of his life had he not legitimized Trump. Now his home state despises him.
GOP is nothing more than a cult for the dear leader. No independent thought whatsoever.
I guess I should feel bad: I had to be out of state all day, and didn't occur to me to get an absentee. Although I think I voted Dem in the last one, so I wouldn't have been eligible?
Embarrassing to have to ask, but do you think Tuberville is worse that Roy Moore?
Tuberville is amazingly stupid, which is the only reason why I ask. I think they share a lot of other qualities
That’s insane. What the fuck is that going to mean for November
